Representatives on site may conduct hiring interviews; attendees should dress professionally and bring a current resume. Fields of focus at the fair include trades such as construction, cosmetology, criminal justice, electrical, finance, medical field, plumbing and welding. Recruiters with the U.S. military are set to attend and representatives from the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) and the University of Maryland will be on site.

Student attendees can also inquire with employers such as the University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center and SMECO about available apprenticeship programs. Additionally, local union representatives from local building and trades associations, the Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee and the Center for Trades and Energy Training from CSM will participate.

The goal of the fair is to provide CCPS students with another opportunity to learn about future career possibilities, use interview skills, research job availabilities and explore trades. North Point is located at 2500 Davis Road.
